Other contracts include Plumbing at $58,576 (Ohio Plumbing), HVAC, $63,000 (Eagle Heating and Cooling) and Electrical at $82,887 (C.S. Electric).

Design Build Contingencies (architectural), construction stage design services and design build fees (all to Thomas and Marker), add $45,190 and alternatives that will be added to the project include $60,862 to include the EMS washroom and toilet; $16,391 for the kitchen hood and $50,263 for an emergency generator.

Chief Joe Porter said the project is expected to get underway by the middle of the month and be completed in the fall.
